Collaboration is necessary to achieve a good social work practice : A study about how social workers perceive collaboration and cooperation within the Swedish substance abuse and addiction care (English)
Abstract [sv]

Den ökade problemspecialisering i samhällets människovårdande organisationer ställer allt högre krav på samverkan. Personer med missbruk är en grupp som inte sällan har en komplex och sammansatt problematik, vilket ofta kräver samverkan. Syftet med vår studie var att öka kunskapen om betydelsen och upplevelsen av samverkan kring klienter med missbruks- och beroendeproblematik. Vi använde oss av kvalitativ forskningsmetod, där empirin har samlats in genom intervjuer med fyra socialarbetare. Intervjumaterialet tematiserades och analyserades utifrån tidigare forskning samt socialkonstruktinismen och systemteorin. I vår studie framkom det att samverkan hänger mycket på den enskilde socialarbetarens vilja och ork att driva ärendet, utifrån klientens hela behov. Samverkan är i stort något som upplevdes viktigt och nödvändigt. Organisatoriska hinder och tillkortakommanden för att genomföra samverkan nämndes, men aspekter som arbetskultur, synsätt, relationer och respekt ansågs ha större betydelse. Slutsatsen i vår studie blev att samverkan behövs och är främst något som upplevs positivt.

Abstract [en]

The increased specialization of human-welfare organizations put higher demands on collaboration. People with substance abuse often have a complex set of problems that requires collaboration. The purpose of our study was to increase knowledge about the meaning and perception of collaboration around clients with addiction problems. We used a qualitative research method, with data based on interviews with four social workers. Themes were identified in the data and then analysed in relation to the social constructionism, system theory and previous research. We found that collaboration depends largely on the individual social worker’s willingness and persistence to lead the case, for the client’s entire needs. Collaboration was mainly perceived as something important and essential. Organizational barriers and shortcomings were mentioned, but aspects such as working culture, approaches, relationships and respect were considered to be of greater importance. The main conclusion in our study was that collaboration is seen as highly relevant and something positive.
